If you look at the NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics and Results, the studies and reports on indigenous Australians is comprehensive.

From property damage, to drug abuse the information is comprehensive, as is the details on sexual assault and abuse against children. But there are few details about sexual assault against women. Yatungka Gordon is a Bundjalung and Gurang, Gurang woman and also the Aboriginal Network Project Worker for NSW Rape Crisis. She recently wrote an article for the Sydney morning Herald about the problems Aboriginal women face when coping, dealing and reporting sexual assault.
